Employee Retention Credit 2021 Qualifications

In a year marked by financial turmoil and a shaky economy, Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERTC) emerged as a potential lifeline for many businesses… But the labyrinthine rules and complex qualifications may have left you scratching your head. You might even find yourself asking…

What is the Employee Retention Credit (ERTC)?

The Employee Retention Credit (ERTC) is a refundable tax credit under the CARES Act… It was designed to encourage businesses to keep employees on their payroll during COVID-19 related closures or financial hardships. However, the intricacies of this program are vast… So, let’s dive deeper.

How does one qualify for the ERTC?

Determining qualification for the ERTC is not always straightforward. The IRS has set forth some key criteria that must be met in order to be eligible…

Firstly, an employer must operate a trade or business during calendar year 2020 and experience either:

  • Full or partial suspension of operations due to government orders relating to COVID-19
  • A significant decline in gross receipts

It’s also important that these employers continue paying wages and health plan expenses despite these difficulties.

But what constitutes as significant decline in gross receipts? Or partial suspension? These terms can be subjective and require careful consideration.

Secondly, the calculation of these credits can also be complex. It is based on qualifying wages paid plus a portion of any cost incurred by the employer in providing health benefits.

In short, ERTC isn’t something you want to navigate without guidance. Whether you’re seeking this out independently or you’re a CPA serving clients…

What lies and deceptions are firms using to entice you?

There have been numerous reports about ERC firms employing deceptive tactics… Promising “too good to be true” outcomes or dodging questions about qualifications or the application process. This kind of conduct only emphasizes the need for independent eligibility review.

While the promise of ERTC is alluring, falling victim to these fraudulent schemes can leave you in a worse position than before…
